Historical Note

The Midwest Universities Consortium for International Activities (MUCIA) was established in 1964 with a grant from the Ford Foundation. MUCIA is a not-for-profit consortium of three of America’s largest land grant research universities, including: Michigan State University, University of Minnesota, and The Ohio State University. As a consortium, MUCIA deals mainly with large-scale projects that require the combined resources of its members. All MUCIA member universities are actively involved in the management of international development projects which have included educational institution assistance, degree and non-degree training, faculty exchange, and collaborative research. Projects have focused on agriculture, health, natural resources, public policy, business, education, and legal institutions.
